Thank you to all who commented yesterday. It helped me figure out where the ‘good’ comments were. I uploaded WP Spam (thank you Michelle!) but I still have a lot of work to do by deleting out all of the previous spam. Sigh.
We made some progress this past weekend! My living room is free and clear of all ‘stuff’.
It’s amazing to me how much one can accumulate. As I boxed up items from armoires, closets and other nooks and crannies, I couldn’t believe how much stuff I was pulling out. I did manage to get rid of some of it, but because of my time frame to complete the work, I didn’t have time to evaluate everything. I will definitely take my time putting things back to make sure I LOVE it or find it serves a functional purpose. We also got rid of a lot furniture pieces that I no longer love or are functional. It feels refreshing to see a blank canvas once again.

We have 4 days before the floor refinishers come. I have the the fridge to empty out and laundry to complete. We are having one more room painted and the kitchen back splash installed. (Talk about cramming it all in….)
In the meantime, I have to do some major work on the finances to see where we stand. It’s been a free for all with the checkbook and my dwindling savings account.
Let’s hope it’s not as bad as I think. -!
